I did not know that Baba Yaga was a witch of Russian and Eastern European fairy tales. Natasha was given three items from a cat because she was kind to the cat. Some points of this story which the number of the items was three and she threw those running from Baba Yaga reminded me Japanese traditional stories such as three amulets, san-mai no o-fuda.
